Some Jokes and Wise Words told by my Linux Mint Terminal!

Linux Mint Desktop screenshotI use Linux Mint Operating System in my Laptop. I think this is one of the easiest to use Linux Operating System available right now. In Linux, there is something called as the Terminal (Its like the DOS mode in windows). Some people say that you can do everything in the terminal (whatever you can do from the desktop, that is) and it seems, the desktop itself is an extension of the Terminal! But I am not conversant with the Terminal commands and I find the Desktop GUI interface to be far more easy!

But sometimes, you need to go to the terminal to do certain things (like adjusting the resolution). So, whenever I go to the terminal, it tells me some jokes, some quotes, some wise words, some predictions, etc. Some of them are really funny. One such joke is given in the below screen shot:

    nice one liners , I have never used Linux…

      When I was young, I used to sleep more. But now its become less… Try to get linux on a dual boot along with windows and start learning it. Open source is challenging and you can learn a lot. It is the future.

      This Linux Mint surely has. They have managed to go out of the conventional norms (of open standards) and made a deal with windows where one can run Linux Mint from windows itself, it seems!!

      Linux Mint is sure doing things differently from other Linux projects. This makes the lives of non-technical ppl (like me) so simple. Do try, I like this very much.

    • Rajesh K

      Actually I have put only the funny ones here (mostly). Sometimes it gives statements like ‘You are not dead yet. But watch for further reports’ πŸ˜› which shocks me πŸ˜€

    • Rajesh K

      Well the comment implies that you can get up in the morning too… but you ought not to hate yourself, thats all πŸ™‚ You were the only one to notice the tenth one!

    A computer program with a sense of humor. Not familiar with Linux in the slightest bit, but could see how the random wise cracks could cause some thought provoking conversations. Thanks!

    • Rajesh K

      Computer program telling the jokes that were pre-stored in it! Though I would like to see if machines can ever trained to come up with original humor. Will be a very tough job to do, and might require a crazy mathematical genius to achieve…

    #5 is applicable on me.
    My brakes are definitely defective, made in China may be.. lol

    BTW, when i read the first sentence and i read the word LINUX, i knew that it is an Indian Techie guy’s blog. ( no offense but an expert observation :P). Anyway, I am glad that i skipped paragraph 1 and moved to your 10 points. Liked all of them

    Stay connected!

    • Rajesh K

      I am an Indian but not a Techie! So, your observation is half right. I generally write more serious stuff, but am trying to get in some occasional humor as well… Welcome.
